With the aim of bringing together and connecting children of Croatian descent from the United States of America and Canada with the children in Croatia who have family members in the United States and Canada, we invite all interested children to enter our second annual

 

Children’s Art and Literary Contest

With the theme

My Family on Two Continents

Organized by the Croatian School of Boston

 

The contest is open to children of Croatian descent from 3-18 years of age who

reside in the United States of America and Canada, and to children residing

in Croatia who have family members on the North American continent.

The contest comprises the following categories:

 

Writing Piece (in the Croatian language or dialect)

  • prose: 3 age groups: 7-10 years, 11-14 years, 15-18 years;
  • poetry: 3 age groups: 7-10 years, 11-14 years, 15-18 years;

Audio/Video Clip (in the Croatian language or dialect) – 2 age groups: 11-14 years, 15-18 years;

 

The theme of this year’s contest will again center around the ties between the family members living in the USA and/or Canada and family members living in Croatia. Possible topics may include visits to relatives, family stories and anecdotes, heirlooms, or any other

positive influence or experience the children associate with the connection between the family on the North American continent and the family in Croatia.

Writing pieces will be accepted in pdf or word document format, or can be included in the email body. Art work should be sent in jpg format. Art and photo work must be accompanied by a title and a brief description of the subject. Due to the file size, we cannot accept audio and video files as an attachment; please send us a link to your clip on one of the standard video-sharing websites, such as YouTube.

The first prize in each category and age group will win a Croatia-related prize. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
